Kony Victim Comes Out Against Kony 2012 Viral Video [Video]
But on CNN yesterday, one of Kony’s victims came out against the Kony 2012 video.Â Evelyn ApokoÂ was kidnapped by theÂ Lordâ€™s Resistance Army when she was only 13, and was beaten by the army until she finally escaped three years later.
When Don Lemon asked Apoko about her reaction to the Kony 2012 video, she said:
â€œThe way I feel about the campaignâ€¦ in my own opinion is, I think that I would be glad to see the faces of the children who are being abducted, to make those kids become well-known to the people around the world, not the face of Joseph Kony. Because Joseph Kony, he is the one who abducted those young kids. I feel like it might be better if it were the faces of the children, itâ€™s better than Joseph Kony himself.â€
